Disney’s 20th Television has signed a new multi-year overall deal with Adamma & Adanne Ebo, who are currently working on a new animated series for Freeform called, ” Supashawty Girls, Funkamatic Bangbang” and a pilot called ” Supply, 404″ with Gloria Sanchez and MRC.
As part of the overall deal, they will be developing, creating and producing live-action and animated series for all of Disney’s platforms.

Unfortunately for humanity, they’d actually rather kick it than kick butt & save the world.
